With the result of lockdown, the favorite beaches of Thailand which often used to possess hordes of tourists have observed the return of popular sea creatures like Whales, Turtles etc. And therefore, the united states is likely to close the parks for many months to greatly help the environment to recuperate from the damage which has happened because of tourists visiting the united states.
The closure of parks because of pandemic has allowed the natural habitat to recuperate from the hordes of tourist crowds and bought a return of wildlife such as for example whales and turtles said Natural Resources & Environment Minister Varawut Silpa-archa. And today the authorities are preparing to close the parks annually for 2-4 months starting next year which can only help the conservation of the parks.
“That is in order that nature can rehabilitate itself and the parks could be improved by the park rangers,” – said the minister within an interview at Bangkok.
Thailand has over 100 national parks which can be found in North and in the south such as for example in the hawaiian islands of Phi Phi, Phang Nga Bay and in the entire year 2019 over 20 million people visited the parks which contributed over $70 million in park fees.
Tourism is really a major contributor to the GDP of Thailand sufficient reason for the pandemic, over 1/5th of GDP has been disrupted by lockdown enforced because of pandemic. With the lockdown, the federal government is estimating that over 7 million people might go to the tropical location of Thailand which witnessed over 40 million visitors this past year.
Minister Varawut Silpa-archa said that the closure of parks will affect the country’s GDP a lot more, Maya Bay in Phi Phi Islands made famous in a Hollywood movie ‘The Beach’ starring Leonardo DiCaprio will undoubtedly be closed until a few of the areas which are destroyed by tourists will undoubtedly be recovered in fact it is noted that the bay’s coral reef will need just as much as 40 years to come back.
